“There are enough joyless punk screamers and pretentious Green Day-lite bands out there but far too few, like the Dollyrots, who can channel the frothy, punchy brilliance of ’90s-era Josie & the Pussycats” – All Music Guide
Punk rock duo the Dollyrots released their sixth studio album Whiplash Splash last Friday, March 31 and this week the album debuts on both Billboard’s Heatseekers chart at #13 and Billboard’s Independent Albums chart at $#31.

Whiplash Splash is available on CD, limited-edition aqua-blue vinyl, and digitally on the band’s very own Arrested Youth Label with distribution via MVD Entertainment Group. The Dollyrots’ spirit and signature sound shines through on the completely fan-funded new album, with production by the band and longtime Producer John Fields.
“With Whiplash Splash The Dollyrots come full circle and find the perfect mix of Pop, Punk, Rock, snark, neato-ness and everything else” Hard Rock Haven
The band’s 2016 live album/DVD Family Vacation: Live in Los Angeles debuted at #15 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart and Barefoot And Pregnant garnered their first chart appearance peaking at #7 on Billboard’s Heatseekers. Both chart appearances were preceded by highly successful crowdsourcing campaigns through PledgeMusic. This followed the group’s 2012’s self-titled LP, two albums on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records, and a 2004 debut through the venerable Lookout!/Panic Button Records.
“a knack for hard-hitting, catchy as hell music with witty lyricism” — Cryptic Rock
The Dollyrots have just wrapped up the first leg of their tour run and will be back out on the road in May.
